Being very new to BLOGING, I have a few questions. What makes BLOGING different from Chat Rooms? Having limited experience with Chat Rooms and after reading your excellent article I can see some differences, however I would like to know your input on the subject.
Also since I have never tried a Weblog site (at least not that I know of), how do I find BLOG sites that I might be interested in? Is there some sort of BLOG directory?
I am not new to the Internet but BOLG is a term I have seen very little of until recently.
I very seldom go into or even “Skulk” chat rooms because I find it hard to keep up with all the shortcuts, acronyms emcons, and shorthand used, I don’t see any of this in the posting to this site. Do BLOGs use these types of communication?

    Usually chat room messages disappear after the chat is over, although in some cases the text can be archived on a serve.

    blogs are meant to be published and visible at all times, either in a private blog space or a public blog space. You can see the text of all members of a particular blog. The blogs are categorized according to dates, titles, names (whatever the administrator of that blog sets up.) Blogs can be edited, chat rooms discussions cannot.
